Dollar Store Crafts is running a contest again this month. This time you take school supplies from the dollar store and turn them into something distinctly NOT school supply-ish.
I intended to make a piece of jewelry with these but I would have needed a bunch of supplies that you can't find at the dollar store. I wanted to challenge myself to figure out some other way of showcasing these cuties and ONLY use school supplies! I think I did it!
Look at these cuties! They are Stackable Crayons and I found them at the dollar store. The colors are what drew me in.
To make this rainbow sun catcher (or backpack charm) you need:
A large paper clip
Small needle nosed pliers
STEP 1: Pull apart the crayons. Straighten the paper clip.
STEP 3: Using your pliers, wind the end of the paper clip around itself to create a swirl. This swirl will be at the bottom of your sun catcher and should be large enough that the paper clip won't slip up through the beads. Make sure you leave enough wire at the top of the sun catcher for the next step.
STEP 4: using your pliers, make a loop at the top of your sun catcher.
STEP 5: Hang it somewhere and enjoy!
